Amanda Holden - Amanda Holden Diagnosed With Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

British actress Amanda Holden was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (Ptsd) after she nearly died giving birth to her daughter.

The Tv star was left in a critical condition during the Caesarean section delivery of her little girl Hollie in 2012. She lost several pints of blood and her heart stopped beating during the procedure.

Holden was saved by the doctors and went on to make a full recovery, but now admits the stress of the episode left her suffering from Ptsd, which is often associated with war veterans.

She tells Britain's Radio Times magazine, "After that, I thought seriously about illness and assumed whenever I had a cough, it was lung cancer. I've had therapy and was told I suffered from post-traumatic stress syndrome... I assumed that (Ptsd) was what people had in Afghanistan, and I haven't fought a war, but maybe I have in a way."
